I don't think I'll be able to make it this spring, since that is right around the time we start the dig on our new house. Hope to make it there for the fall event though. Have fun guys!

Hi Melissa,

Mike Tuck said he was planning to attend. I'll also contact Smitty to see if he is going.

No thanks on the Bison burgers, maybe we can find something like Buffalo Wild Wings instead.

See you in a few weeks.

Damn! We have to be in KC on April 16th too. It's not THAT far out of the way. Wonder if I can talk The Boss(tm) into making the trip by car a little earlier instead of flying....... hmmmm.

Damn! That's an awful lot of time to try and get off work for. I wonder how it impacts my getting off for the Shoot Out too??? Gotta think about this some.

Ira,

That would be very cool if you guys could make it there.

Well I broached the subject over dinner last night and although she appreciated the nice meal and fine wine that I tried to bribe her with all I got was the "eyes to the ceiling" routine. :rolleyes: Guess it's gonna take a little more work ;)

It would certainly be nice to get out there and see everyone. Funny thing is taking off a week early isn't an issue. The sticking point is getting the extra days off for the drive home from KC. That was never part of the equation. We'll see.

Ira,

I know how that "eye rolling" thing goes...:rolleyes:

I got a similar reaction when I showed Kathy some new wheel pictures the other day, while asking how she thought they would look on my black SC.

Smitty was there last time, but don't know if he is coming. Not sure if Mike is confirmed to be attending, and Chris Lazzo and Ira are still a maybe.

Sorry guys, still working on a room re-model, so that weekend will not work out very well.

Will have to try again at a leter date.

Not me I'm afraid. There's too many days and too much down time between that weekend and the next when we have to be in KC. Don't they do it again in the fall?? Maybe then if it isn't too close to the Shoot Out.

Ira

They do it in the Fall also. Last year it was the first weekend in November.

Did some tweaking to the tune and 2 step settings on the turbo car this morning. Now I just need to get some race fuel and wash it.

Looking forward to seeing you guys.

David

PS: Anthony can you please PM me a cell number for you or Sally so I can get a hold of you guys Saturday evening.

That's funny, you post up the weather just I after I checked it thinking the same thing.

David Neibert
04-04-2011, 04:22 PM
If the weather forecast doesn't improve real soon, I won't be attending. 79 degrees, high humidity and isolated thunderstorms, is not good race weather.

The wife of a coworker and friend of ours, lost her battle with cancer and passed away Tuesday. Since her funeral is being held Saturday, Kathy and I won't be able to attend this meet. Sorry for the last minute change of plans.

Sorry to hear that Dave, looks like we won't be going either....Matt had to take a load to Va and won't be back with enought time to finiah the car up and don't want to spend the gas money on my slow car when I can just go local.

Everything okay ?

Kind of glad we didn't end up going because my car would have been sitting outside on the trailer this morning, when the thunderstorm with hail rolled through.

Yup it hit here as well. My daughters boyfriend had to pull over on the side of the road because it was hailing so hard.

Good thing it was a false alarm Kurt! Hope everything is ok.
